William Shakespeare filled his works with references to the stars in the night sky. Join the Alumni Association at CU Boulder's renowned Fiske Planetarium for an enchanting evening as actors and scientists bring those references to life and give them meaning during Shakespeare and the Stars on Thursday, Aug. 25.

Following the show, take part in a Q&A with CU Boulder Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences Professor Erica Ellingson and Associate Professor and Chair of the English Department David Glimp, to learn more about Shakespeare and his references to the cosmos. Cap the night with a reception featuring light hors d'oeuvres, dessert and a cash bar. Tickets are $15. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.
